Very Good Condition (has some biding rot - no rot on the neck though. Oxidation to gold plating, replaced mute pad. A few very light superficial scratches.)

I've been a Gretsch aficionado for many years now. In fact, some of my guitars have been featured in the Tony Bacon series of books. So I know a good one when I see it. And this is a really good one for a player, but not so much for a collector. It's all original, the collectability is compromised by the binding rot. The playability and sound, though, are exceptional: low action, perfect neck angle, good frets and two really strong PAT # Filter-trons make for a gem of a players double cut 6120. So, if you want a Gretsch to gig out on and you don't care about some unsightly binding (and you don't want to spend $3500 - $4000 on a clean one) jump on this one right now. It's best you're going to find at this price. Oh yeah, it's got a worn white cowboy case with it.
